Instagram is the best place to show that you are living your best life while posting ultra-edited photos that look almost nothing like real life.
Instagram and reality are so far apart that there is a whole new term: Instagram Reality. And some clever Reddit users decided to name and shame people who tampered with their Instagram photos.
While these photos are funny, and there is nothing malicious in posting them, filters and Photoshop apps are more troubling than one could imagine.
Now, enjoy these "Instagram reality" fails and remember that it is not always accurate to "see it to believe it" when it comes to social media.
